As I only really started looking at my diet and focusing solely on cardio within the last two weeks, I wasn’t expecting a great deal of change on the Boditrax scales, I was hoping for it, but not expecting it.
Last night I found the following…
- Weight dropped from 16st 13lb to 16st 6lb
- BMI dropped from 36.8 to 35.7
- 2lb loss in muscle
- 5lb loss of fat
- Degree of Obesity dropped from 67.5% to 62.4%
Below are some pictures showing my current body composition, the all yellow is muscle composition and the yellow and red is fat composition. I’ll be looking forward to seeing how this changes over time.
The weekend was always going to be a bit of a flop, we like to chill and see our family and there is always food and treats doing the rounds. I had already decided that I was going to behave as well as I could over the week so that
if when I was bad over the weekend, I’d have a bit of a buffer.
So over the weekend I managed to put 1.2 lbs on and whilst that may seem high, I lost 4.2 lbs throughout the entire week which gives me a total of 4.6 lbs to lose now for the doctor in five weeks. I’m feeling much better about this now. It also leaves me with 92 lbs to go until I reach my overall goal and 9.8 lbs to go until I can get my first little tattoo reward!
I’m hoping that this weekend will be better but if I can replicate this week again then I’d be over the frackin’ moon!
As I was reading around some of the other blogs that I follow I came across a measurement post by Layers of Fat which reminded me that I was supposed to do the same so that I could see where and how my body changed throughout this journey of mine, so my numbers are currently as follows…
Bust: 110 cm
Chest: 100 cm
Waist: 104 cm
Hips: 116 cm
Thighs: 74 cm
Knees: 50 cm
Calves: 46 cm
Upper arm: 41 cm
Forearm: 28 cm
And thanks to this handy tool my shape is currently looking something like this…
If only my gut looked that smooth, it’s a saggy, flabby mess but maybe one day it won’t be too far off from this.
Right well that’s where I am today so lets see what this next week brings.
I’m off to the gym!
